Veterans Day

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, 1918 – World War I ended – and the 20th century world was born. We have yet to see the true war to end all wars, but I guess we can still hope for true peace. Salute the veterans.

God, I really have to stop reading the political stuff. U.S. Senator Arlen Specter has some baggage to deal with before he can be named the new judiciary committee chair – liberals recall his digging at Prof. Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation process; the conservatives haven’t forgiven him for not backing Robert Bork. And, reading the articles about him, I had no idea that he had even more baggage – a Democrat in his youth, and a bright lawyer (and we all know how popular lawyers are these days …). Sigh.

And, Ashcroft as Attorney General is moving on (applause) – but that leaves us with what – well, we’ll see, I guess.

Oh, and of course, NYS politics is insane – if, nationally, the Democratic party is feeling lost in the wilderness – the NYS Republicans really feel lost. (it doesn’t help that the state legislature is dysfunctional – I’d have linked to an article about this topic, but they’re all sad and depressing).

Well, it’ll be back to work tomorrow – so looking forward to seeing how “Star Trek: Enterprise” will end the 3-episode arc – I don’t say that very often of this series in awhile too…

The race is on

The race is on again… On my way to LGA in car service. On these early departures, I can never sleep until I’m on the plane. I think that I have everything. I’m travelling way light – only a duffle bag and my laptop.
